Gifts, Gadgets and Good Taste for Healthy Holidays

Delight your friends and family with creative and clever gifts. From stunning ice cubes to walking in beautiful American landscapes, these items can help everyone on your shopping list have fun, move more and eat right - and lower their risk for cancer.

Color-Changing Ice Cubes

Here's how you can make water glamorous. This LED Color-changing Ice Cube Set will be the talk of any party. One set has four ice cube molds that come with a built-in LED light and it changes color! A perfect gift for anyone who loves to entertain. 

Magnetic Measuring Spoons

These sleek Magnetic Measuring Spoons stick together in the drawer, but you can easily pull out just one. Our staff foodie raves about these - you can get two uses out of each spoon and the elongated end allows the spoon to fit in narrow jar openings. Inspire a budding cook with jars of cancer-fighting colorful spices and these beautifully designed spoons.

Bikeshare Pass

For friends or family who want to get more active or are just looking for a better way to get around town, a Bikeshare Pass is the perfect gift. In cities like Buffalo and Omaha, choose an hourly pass or a annual membership. What a great way to get that recommended 30-60 minutes of physical activity for cancer prevention!

3-in-1 Apple Peeler, Slicer and Corer

This 3-in-1 Apple Peeler, Slicer and Corer is an ideal gift for the gadget lover in your life. Apples are perfect eating as is, but for recipes like Apple-Cranberry Crisp or Applesauce this tool cuts prep time in half. More fruit and veggies means lower cancer risk - see the research, tips and recipes for apples at AICR's Foods that Fight Cancer: Apples section.

Specialty Classes: Dancing or Cooking

Make healthy eating and getting active a group activity - find a local cooking class or dance class for your friend or family member who loves to keep on learning while being active. You can also find cooking classes at local restaurants and check local recreation facilities for community classes.

A Guide to Greens

Healthy recipes for all the greens you know (and some you don't) are easy in this comprehensive cookbook from AICR's own recipe developer, Dana Jacobi. The Power Greens Cookbook will help you incorporate more plant foods in your diet and make them taste delicious!

Perfect Measure Wine Glass

Here's an elegant gift for a health-conscious friend who enjoys an occasional glass of wine. This Perfect Measure Wine Glass makes it easy to stay within both your calorie goals and AICR's alcohol recommendation for cancer prevention.

Creature Cups

For the morning coffee junkie, this adorable cup will add an extra jolt to their morning routine. There are a variety of Creature Cup options for drinking healthful and phytochemical-rich coffee and tea throughout the day. 

Parks and Rec Passes

Give the gift of natural beauty and wonder. For your friends and family who travel across the US or their state, there are many beautiful parks to experience. A National Parks Pass allows free entrance to any National Park for one year. Many states also offer annual passes for State Parks closer to home for hiking, fishing or camping. What a great way to get out, get active and enjoy America the Beautiful.


Check out these AICR staff cookbook picks for delicious, simple and healthful recipes. The Skinnytaste cookbook reviewer said these recipes are consistently flavorful, healthful and easy enough for a quick evening meal. For the local foodie, Simply in Season recipes are displayed by season, making it easy to find recipes for food from the local Farmer's Market or a CSA box. Both provide great ideas to put more cancer-fighting fruits, veggies and whole grains on the table.
